5 Benefits of using natural footcare products

Did you know the largest organ in the human body is our skin?

Our skin does an amazing job at keeping in what needs to stay in our bodies and keeping out what needs to stay out. And yes, that includes skincare or, more on point with this blog, footcare products.

So, you may be thinking, what’s the point of using any products then if they can’t even get past my skin?

Certain ingredients are added into the footcare products that bypass our skin’s defence mechanisms, allowing the products to penetrate and work their magic. This is what we want for smooth, soft and healthy feet. Natural products are a good and safe option to allow the honour of getting past our skin.

Curious to know why? Read what a Perth podiatrist has to say on the 5 benefits of using natural footcare products.

1. No Nasties

Parabens, synthetic (human-made) ingredients and toxins – you won’t find any of these in natural footcare products.

These are usually used for fragrance, texture and colour, which is fair enough, right? Who wouldn’t want to smell like a rainforest using a green-coloured lotion? Sadly though, these ingredients are bad for our skin.

The natural footcare products doesn’t use any nasty ingredients – which is a big win, especially for those of us with sensitive skin. Natural ingredients can reduce the risk of redness, itchiness, and skin irritations.

But don’t worry, you can still smell great with natural products – there are a whole bunch of essential oils that are completely natural and smell like a treat! Who would have thought that feet could smell good?

2. Only the good stuff

The ingredients in natural footcare products are not only free from any nasties but are beneficial in moisturising our skin and fighting against infections as well. And bonus – you

don’t have to spend time trying to figure out how to simply pronounce their names!

Some common ingredients that I’ve used in PC Podiatrist Formula® natural footcare range are:

  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Green tea
  • Aloe vera leaf
  • Essential oils (lemongrass, lime and lemon verbena)
  • Vitamin E
  • Coconut oil
  • Shea oil
  • Jojoba oil

These ingredients stand among the good stuff that fight against foot fungus and other infections.

Please bear in mind, natural footcare products only have mild, natural antifungal properties and won’t treat an infection. But it will help fight the infection by arming you with increased foot health and hygiene.

3. Kind to our skin

Natural ingredients are gentle and kind to our skin. They don’t strip our natural oils away but instead, work to stop us from losing any.

They are very good at adding moisture too – especially things like coconut oil, aloe vera, and shea butter.

4. Cruelty free

Did you know Australia banned testing cosmetic products on animals in 2020?

PC Podiatrist Formula® natural footcare range is proudly cruelty-free and uses kinder, more ethical ways to ensure our products are safe.

5. Good for our environment

Natural ingredients are just that – natural.

This means when we wash them off and send them down our shower drain, we can rest easy knowing we are sending back to the earth what the earth gave us.

We can reduce our harmful footprints on the planet and support a sustainable environment by investing in natural footcare products that don’t end up sending waste or toxins back to the earth.


Ready to go all natural for your feet?

Finding natural products, particularly for our feet, is like stumbling on a marathon runner with no blisters. Talk about rarity!

As I was finding my feet again in podiatry after a few years in the beauty industry, I enjoyed seeing a wide variety of patients with a wide variety of conditions. But when I began looking for an organic, custom-made option for my patients, I simply couldn’t find one. It didn’t seem to exist.

So, I ended up making my own range of natural footcare products to help my patients - right here in Australia.
